The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has rejected nominations for TNA Provincial Council member Anandi Saseetharan to contest the August 17 Parliament elections.
Saseetharan had requested nominations to contest and enter Parliament but the TNA had today rejected that request.
The TNA had noted that Saseetharan has already been given several privileges by the party and so a policy decision was taken not to give her nominations.
Meanwhile, TNA Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran said that the TNA hopes to secure at least 20 seats in Parliament through the August election.
At a meeting held in Vavuniya today, the TNA decided to handover nomination papers for its candidates contesting the election from the North and East on Friday. (Colombo Gazette)
